Family, Fair, Football, and Fall Crafts!

Story told by: Lainey

We’ve had an eventful last few days!

Unfortunately it all started with some heartbreak. But don’t worry, I’ve moved on at this point, and now believe I can still find my true love. Maybe it will happen in first grade.

Na Na and Ba Ba were here last weekend!

They brought us fun toys that we got to work on opening right away.

The boys built a giant train track while Na Na and I got some peaceful girl time.

On Friday morning, I went to school while Na Na and Ba Ba took the boys to Bonkerz for a few hours. This means Mommy was in the house ALONE!! It’s been a very long time since that’s happened. She read her book and drank several cups of HOT coffee. Pure bliss!

Brody and Mommy came to get me from kindergarten, and Brody picked flowers for me on the way. Unfortunately he couldn’t resist blowing the flower pieces off, so by the time he got to school, he had some nice stems to give to me. Gee, you shouldn’t have, Brody.

Mommy’s good friends Christine and Wes were in town for the football game, so we all went to meet them and their son, Lucas, for ice cream on Friday evening.

Mommy tried to get a good picture of the boys, but that proved to be an impossible task.

Lucas is three, so he fit right in with the crazy boys.

Mommy and Daddy really enjoyed catching up with their friends!

On Saturday morning we woke up and went to the Palouse Empire Fair in Colfax!

Feeding balls to a robot.

We watched rodeo horse games and ate cotton candy for quite a long time!

Then after Mommy and Daddy spent approximately $1,000,000 on tickets, it was time for rides!

Brody longingly watched us ride. He couldn’t do this one because the rule was that you couldn’t stand up in the ride. We were pretty sure Brody would try to hurl himself out the door.

Brody got to ride a truck next, though!

He was very serious while riding, but after it was done, he told us how much he loved it!

I was most excited for the merry-go-round, and the boys wanted to join me.

It was the fastest merry-go-round Mommy and Daddy have ever seen. Daddy was quite dizzy when the ride was done, but we loved it!

As we were leaving the fair, we saw my teacher, Mrs. Kinzer, and she asked if we wanted to ride her horse. Ummmm, of course!!!

I really enjoyed it!

Henry’s turn!

Henry loved it as well! Thanks, Mrs. Kinzer!

On Saturday night, we stayed with a babysitter, while the adults all went to the WSU vs. Boise State football game.

The Cougs were down by 21 points in the fourth quarter, and they CAME BACK TO WIN in triple overtime!!

They didn’t leave the stadium until midnight, but it was so worth it!! Such an amazing game!!

Daddy spent a ton of time prepping wood so Mommy could have her friends over for a fun pumpkin craft night last night.

In between waiting for the pumpkins to dry, there were delicious snacks for the women to enjoy.

The finished product!

Nothing like laughing and chatting with your friends all night! Bring on fall!
